    I've decided that it would be fun to exchange what our genetic traits are. I'll start with mine:

    Curly hair/Straight hair - Straight hair
    Dark eyes/Blue eyes - Blue eyes
    Left thumb dominant/Right thumb dominant - Left thumb dominant
    Left arm dominant/Right arm dominant - Left arm dominant
    Left hand dominant/Right hand dominant - Right hand dominant
    Left eye dominant/Right eye dominant - Unable to determine
    Attached ears/Detached ears - Detached, though I have small lobes
    Dimples/No dimples - No dimples
    Square nape/Pointed nape - Pointed nape
    Widows peak/No widows peak - No widows peak
    Can roll tongue/Can't roll tongue - Can roll tongue
    Bent little finger/Straight little finger - Slightly bent

    Nape = hairline at back of neck. Square means it grows in a line shape while pointed means that it grows to a point/cowlick/tail.
    Dominant thumb = the thumb that goes over the top when you clasp your hands
    Dominant arm = the arm that goes over the top when you cross your arms

    I did this with my class in science a few years back. Another thing, it seems a little weird that I'm left thumb and left arm dominant (based on the way that I cross my arms/clasp my hands) but right hand dominant. Most people, particularly older people, are all one side or all the other.

    Well now there's a thing with some of these, i have a developmental coordination disorder so the dominance from me hand, arm and thumb wise will always vary depending on what task i m doing or is just really random at times.
    For your other questions:
    Curly hair
    My eyes are hazel:P
    Attached ears
    No dimples
    Square nape
    cant roll my tongue
    my little finger is reasonably straight

    What does tongue rolling have to do with genetics? Does it really?...

    wtf is a nape?...

    "detached ear?"...

    >_>


    Ermm yea dunno but I will say what's genetic on my dad's side is big feet.
    I'm the only full-blooded sibling who looks smack like him, and I have big feet, but my eldest sister looks smack like our mum yet inherited his big feet still :rofl:
    The rest of our siblings are hybrids of our mum and dad so there's no particular features about them.

    Lol because with most people if their parents can role their tongue then they can but if they're parents can't they can't and that's me 👍🏼
    The nape is the shape of your hairline from the back like on your neck ❤️
    From the bottom of your ear like the piercing bit , some people have their ear attached to their face and others just hangs loose 👌🏼😊
